Longwood Gardens

I søndags tog vi i Longwood Gardens, en temmelig stor, meget smuk botanisk have som ligger godt en times kørsel væk. Den er godt nok flot!
Vi fik set det store show med springvand, der virkelig var imponerende. Dette her er jo bare et øjebliksbillede og vandet nåede slet ikke op på sit højeste, men man kan jo sammenligne med de mennesker der står foran vandet og se, hvor højt det når op! Det var en forestilling hvor vandet "dansede" til musik. Sådan så det ihvertfald ud, når strålerne flyttede sig frem og tilbage.

On Sunday, we went to Longwood Gardens, a very big, really beautiful botanical garden about a bit more than an hour away by car. It was really impressive!
We got to see the big fountain show, which was very impressive. This photo is just an instant, and the water is not even at it's highest, but you can compare the water to the people standing in front of it and see, how far up it goes! The performance showed the water kind of dancing to music. At least that is what it looked like, swaying from side to side.
Drivhusene var virkelig store og husede blandt andet nogle orkidéer jeg aldrig har set før. Det var også blomsterplanter som var klippet og bundet op, så blomsterne sad i sådan en halvkugle her. 
Jeg måtte have næsen HELT ind i for at se, at det virkelig var en plante!

The greenhouses were really big and held, among other things, some orchids that I've never seen before. There were also flower plants that had been groomed to make the flowers sit like this.
I needed to bury my nose deep in it to check that it was really a plant!
Udenfor var der små damme med åkander. Ih, så store og smukke! Der var mange slags blomster, og jeg fik helt lyst til at have sådan nogle derhjemme!

Outside, there were little ponds with water lilies. Oh, how big and beautiful they were! There were so many kinds of flowers, and I felt like having some at home!
Vi var også oppe i udsigtstårnet og kigge ned.
Vi nåede slet ikke at se det hele, men familien fik årskort og så kan de da få lidt glæde af det. Det er garanteret flot når de pynte op til årstiderne i løbet af vinteren!

We even climbed the bird watcher tree to look down.
We didn't see everything, but the family got yearly passes, and so they can get to enjoy it to the fullest. I'm sure it's beautiful when they do the different decorations for the holidays this winter!
